  5. I love reading, and I love singing I do not like speaking a song when I feel like I should be singing it There should have been music at the end or something Also, this was VERY repetitive, and clearly had a secular worldview I certainly don t want to be speaking, You are a child of the universe over my child The photos were the one redeeming feature of this book.

  7. Oh my god, this amazing and beautiful I think little kids would love all the pictures of ethnically diverse babies and the message is so sweet and tear jerky I don t even have kids and it made me want to cry in a good way.


  8. This is such a beautiful, sing song book to read to babies and toddlers It is a reminder of how babies keep the world turning, and how we are all responsible for creating maintaining a beautiful world for them to emerge into and grow.


  9. Best new baby book ever I m sending one to the newest newborn in my life before the week is out I ll be doing this a lot.





  10. Adorable pictures and story I loved this book and it would be a good book to show babies other babies and what they look like There are different nationalities and sexes too.


  11. I like this lullaby a lot plus baby faces Definitely gonna order this for my brother and sister in law who are expecting an air breather next month.
